of u.s. government bonds after a credit rating agency downgraded u.s. debt in early august. the latest data released by the u.s. treasury department on tuesday show that china's holdings of u.s. treasures fell to $1.173 trilli37 trillion at f august. that's down from $1.173 trillion a month earlier. this marks the first time this china has sold so many u.s. treasures in a single month. we spoke to christian carillo, director of asia pacific interest rate strategy at societe general securities in tokyo on what the impact on markets might be. >> the chinese, the pboc and its international reserve arm, are in the process of diversifying away from u.s. treasuries. this is mainly a result of their policy to try to realign their exchange rate at a more acceptable level in the international market. so it's normal for chinese authorities to be opportunistically trying to sell holdings of u.s. treasuries and buy other things. the u.s. is still a major currency in international markets, not only because of the ratings themselves but also because of the uses of the u.s. dollar both in investment

dan rivers is in tripoli for us. dan, we're about to show our viewers of video of a bloody moammar gadhafi after the capture while he's still alive. what do you know about gadhafi's final moments? >> reporter: well, this video does shed some light on it. it's tough to watch. but i think it's important to have a look at this. you can clearly see that gadhafi is alive when you look at this footage. he is being led away. he looks like he's got a lot of blood on his face. but he is clearly alive. at this point. it seems then that at some point between this video being taken and a subsequent video being taken that he clearly died. now, whether he died of his injuries he sustained when shot, some sources have us believe or whether he was literally beaten to death by this mob of ntc troops sort of pistol whipped to death, we don't know. but clearly here, he seems alive. you get a real visceral sense from this footage of just how roughly he was handled here. naturally perhaps one can imagine that the passion is running so high, but also, i have to stop for that shooting there. but also a s
